Wimbish Passivhaus scheme receives Passivhaus certification

The ball is well and truly rolling for Passivhaus in the UK as yet another Passivhaus Trust member scheme achieves certification today. Hastoe Housing Association's Wimbish Passivhaus scheme, designed by Parsons & Whittley consists of 14 social housing units. The 14 units are made up of 3 bedroom houses, 2 bedroom houses and 1 bedroom flats and was handed over in June 2010. The scheme was a finalist in the Sustainable Housing Awards 2011 for schemes under 25 units.

Chris Parsons comments on the Wimbish Passivhaus blog, 'We have just heard that our 14 Passivhaus dwelling designs at Wimbish have passed the rigorous Passivhaus Institute standards and relevant certificates have been issued to our client, Hastoe Housing Association. The Wimbish development is currently the biggest complete Passivhaus scheme in the UK (lots more in the pipeline!) and we consider ourselves very privileged to have been associated with its design and development.'
